Drawing performance with overhead projection
Walpodencekalender – live advent calendar

Thursday, 8 December 2022
6 – 7 pm
Neubrunnenstraße 8
55116 Mainz

What happens in a landscape when rain falls on dry ground and thirsty vegetation? Microscopically, a few drops of water suddenly bring many organisms back to life. Gelatinous masses of algae form in puddles, protozoa swarm, amoebas begin to move slowly…
In the performance I will “draw” liquid, moving images, as if through a microscope, using overhead projection.
Since 2021, I have been working on the dramatic man-made water shortage in landscapes worldwide. Because of the increasingly drier continents, the earth’s axis is even shifting. We could very well take countermeasures, as amazing examples in Pakistan, Zimbabwe, China and India show. My works „Kiesel, Sand und Modder“ (performance with Makiko Nishikaze, 2021) and „Schwammlandschaft“ (installation at Else!3, 2023) address the possibilities of restoring slow water cycles.

From land art to the creation of sponge landscapes

WORKSHOP on Saturday 18 November, 3 p.m.
Neuer Kunstverein Aschaffenburg e.V.
Landingstraße 16

How can we design landscapes in Europe and around the world so that they can store water again and develop resilience against drought and flooding?
In the workshop, participants will get to know design techniques for more water in the soil, in the landscape and in the local climate and creatively implement them using landscape models in clay, sand, earth and water.

What do the mayor’s official chair, works by more than 25 artists, films, lectures and documentaries have to do with each other? The KunstLANDing deals with the acute issues of our time in the ZERO : ARTLAB. The Aschaffenburger Kunstverein – KunstLANDing invites artists to present projects in an art laboratory that deal with the current challenges of resource scarcity and crisis-like global developments. This creates a “living and working environment” that addresses the questions of the time in the form of an art lab.

Solo exhibition

Luisenplatz 2

Finissage: Monday 30 October 2023, 6 pm with performance „Waldbestattung“ („forest burial“)
Opening hours: Monday-Thursday 10 am – 4.30 pm, Friday 10 am – 3 pm

malatsion’s work at the interface between art, natural sciences and ecology deals with questions of the resilience of living beings in the Anthropocene and human intervention in the living. For the Regional Gallery Südhessen, she is planning an exhibition around the theme of the age of extreme living conditions; she asks how humans can react/act and visualises scenarios of adaptation.

else!3 Treibhaus
29 April – 30 July 2023
Friedhofstr. 6 · 97702 Münnerstadt, Germany

The art project else!3 once again transforms a vacant building in Münnerstadt into a multi-faceted cultural centre. With an area of more than 3 hectares, the large-scale greenhouses with outdoor area of a former market garden offer a fascinating terrain to formulate the contemporary issues of climate, energy, sustainability and self-sufficiency with the means of art in an interdisciplinary way.

During the eleven days of my short artist residency at „else!3 Treibhaus“ art project in Münnerstadt (DE) I created an installation with hay, „Schwammlandschaft“ (Sponge Landscape). The artwork can be seen on site until 30 July, as well as the new exhibition „Treibhaus 3“.

Analogue versus digital, sustainable printing in the context of climate change, or what do printed works mean and show as an artistic medium in the age of increasing digitalization.

My work „Ausrüstung für die Zukunft (Teil # 3422)“ (Equipment for the Future (Part # 3422)) will be exhibited for the first time – a triptych with linocut, cold wax hot-printing, cut-out and three-dimensional folding. An experimental DIY guide as an ironic low-tech counterpart of the 3D printer.

Nature Scribbles and Flesh Reads

Stockholm launch
18:00 – 20:00 CET, Thursday 2 February 2023
at Index, Kungsbrostrand 19, 11226 Stockholm
Oslo launch
17:00 – 19:00 Monday 27 February 2023
at PRAKSIS, Rådhusgata 19, 0158 Oslo

This artists’ book arises from collective work conducted in March 2022 during PRAKSIS’s residency 21, Nature Scribbles and Flesh Reads. The residents were artists Kajsa Dahlberg, Miriam Döring, Annike Flo, Sive Hamilton Helle, Eli Maria Lundgaard, malatsion, Lexie Owen, Rebekka Sæter and Ylva Westerlund.
The residency investigated the ways that the human body, constantly entangled as it is with the other stuff of the world, serves as a measure of the health of the whole environment. The residents’ research focused on the idea of porosity: a softening of the boundaries between human and non-human bodies and the visible and invisible elements that surround them.
Key research questions included: What is an environmentally “normal” body? How is that norm established, and by whom? Might non-normative experiences of heightened sensitivity offer opportunities to better understand our environment? How is toxicity defined: at what point do we recognize something as toxic? In precarious times, how can relationships of care be fostered between human and non-human bodies?
This publication, containing reflections, proposals, artworks, documentation and traces of collective thinking processes, charts the residents’ responses to these questions.
PRAKSIS residency 21, Nature Scribbles and Flesh Reads was developed with Kajsa Dahlberg in collaboration with Index – The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation. It was supported by Arts Council Norway, City of Oslo, The Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm, The Swedish Arts Grants Committee and Goethe Institut Norge.

Reset, restart – a system gets out of balance when the dynamics of its components behave differently. Then even a small trigger can cause the system to tip over. The question of the conditions of complex systems occupies both artists in their own medium.
For this exhibition malatsion will be showing an installation, „the chamber of whispers“, which deals with endocrine disruptors, those artificial chemicals that act like hormones in the body, even in minute amounts. How do bodies become unbalanced under this chemical stress? What new life arises under the influence of these chemicals? Can bodies and species create rapid adaptation?
„The chamber of whispers“ is one of the results of malatsion’s participation in the artist residency „Nature Scribbles and Flesh Reads“, R21 PRAKSIS thematic residency & collective artistic research, with Kajsa Dahlberg and Index – The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation, at PRAKSIS, Oslo.

Coppelia 1
…und am Anfang das Wasser …
Natur – Menschenwerk

Vernissage: Donnerstag, 26. August 2021, 16 bis 20 Uhr
Ausstellung von 27. August bis 2. Oktober 2021, Di-Fr 14-19 / Sa 13-17
Petersburger Str. 76 A
10249 Berlin

COPPELIA, die mechanische Puppe, sollte in E. T. A. Hoffmanns Text zu menschlichem Leben erweckt werden. In einem dreiteiligen Ausstellungsprojekt der INSELGALERIE Berlin steht sie für die Grenzen des menschlichen Schöpferdrangs, der uns heute zu überfordern droht. Biologie, Technologie, Künstliche Intelligenz, Ökonomie und Ökologie: Alles hängt komplex zusammen. Unser Lebensumfeld verändert sich tiefgreifend, gewohnte Vorstellungen und Lebensformen müssen hinterfragt werden. Die alte Frage, wer wir Menschen eigentlich sind und worin unser Wert liegt, stellt sich unter neuen Vorzeichen. Die Ausstellungen COPPELIA 1-3 vereinen Arbeiten von 28 Künstlerinnen und einer Projektgruppe.
… und am Anfang das Wasser …
Natur – Menschenwerk
Schwerpunkt sind ökologische und ästhetische Aspekte des Wassers, jenes lebensspendenden Elementes, das Raumsonden in anderen Teilen des Alls bisher vergeblich suchten.
